Kids Cottage Daycare has obtained a 4 Star rating!

Parent Aware is Minnesota’s Quality Rating and Improvement System. The program is dedicated to helping families find quality child care and early childhood education preparing kids for school and life. Here is a link to their mission.

Educational and Development Benefits

Participating providers receive a One, Two, Three, or Four stars based on demonstrated use of practices that best prepare children for kindergarten. Each rating level builds on the previous, helping families easily identify how far a program has progressed in adopting best practices. For a detailed listing of the rating requirements, please see the Parent Aware Stars Defined page.

Financial Benefits

In addition to better preparing your child for Kindergarten and life, being a 4 Star rated program also provides financial benefits to families through Parent Aware scholarships (up to $7,500 towards tuition) and higher Child Care Assistance Program payments.
